Finger tendon injury compensation claims take into account a great deal more than just the pain and suffering of the injury itself.
This kind of injury can completely change a victim’s life; both in a personal and a professional capacity. And when it comes to how we value this type of claim for compensation, we leave no stone unturned.
Here’s a little advice about how we pursue and value this type of claim for compensation, and what you may be able to include as part of a legal case.
When can you claim?
You may be able to make a finger tendon injury compensation claim if you have suffered some form of injury to that area of the body that wasn’t your fault.
The more common cases tend to involve work accident cases. These can arise from fingers severed on equipment and machinery, or perhaps crushing injuries in similar circumstances. It could be a lack of training, defective equipment, or a lack of guards and safety measures in place to prevent an injury from occurring.
Ultimately, if the accident wasn’t your faulty and more could – and should – have been done to have protected you, that’s when you may be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
How we value finger tendon injury compensation claims
We normally value finger tendon injury compensation claims using expert medical reports from privately-instructed consultants that we arrange appointments for.
We can take into account factors such as:
- The general pain and suffering caused;
- The loss of amenity both in the short and long-term, which may take into account things like hobbies that are affected (playing guitar or knitting, for example);
- Lost earnings from time off work during the recovery period of the injury, and also whether your long-term career is impacted by the injury. For example, it may be that you can no longer work in the same capacity as you did before, and there may be a loss of earnings claim to make.
When you drill down to the detail of just how badly victims who suffer this kind of injury can be affected, there can be a lot to take into account. Surgeons can attempt to reattach severed tendons, but the fingers may never be the same again, and in some cases, reattachment may not work.
